      Villain is nearly unknown (32 hands), but is playing 69/3/0 so far.

      Hero bets $2.48, UTG raises to $4.96, Hero calls $2.48

      With the villain holding so hands that got there, I really am unsure of my river play. Should I have c/f? That seems to weak for the two pair hand I have versus a very passive calling station who could have many other weaker 2 pair (or even one pair hands).

      I bet small to get value from weak hands, but I think I should have just shoved it all in. Or is this a mistake in my thinking?

      How is my play otherwise?

      Preflop raising is fine.

      I'd bet around $1.3 on the flop.

      On the turn I'd bet more as well - $2.9.

      As played, I think you can shove the river yourself here. So much worse hands he could end up calling with.
